Wisdom Teeth Removal
Removal of Impacted Wisdom Teeth
Wisdom Teeth Removal Cabramatta
People between the ages of 17 and 25—or even older—often need to have their wisdom teeth removed.
Your mouth’s final set of teeth to erupt are your wisdom teeth, also known as third molars, which is the main reason your mouth frequently cannot accommodate them, leading to impaction.
There are several situations where a wisdom tooth extraction is necessary. It might be caused by suffocation, injury, decay, or infection.
Visit us at Cabramatta Dental Care for the best treatment if the pain and discomfort from your wisdom tooth are interfering with your daily activities.
Problems Caused by Impacted Wisdom Teeth
- Tender gums
- Swollen or sore gums
- Intense tooth pain
- Pus from the gum
- Having trouble opening your mouth
- Difficulties with swallowing and chewing food
The Importance of Wisdom Tooth Removal
- Prevents bad breath and jaw problems, resulting in overall good health.
- It prevents the spread of infection, which can cause toothache, sore gums, and a general ill feeling.
- It encourages proper oral hygiene. You could easily brush and floss your present, healthy teeth if the impacted teeth weren’t there.
When to See Your Dentist
If you’re experiencing excruciating pain from your wisdom teeth, make an appointment with your Cabramatta dentist. Your teeth will be examined, and we’ll let you know if they need to be pulled.
Your Cabramatta dentist will typically take an X-ray of your mouth if they believe you might need to have your wisdom teeth removed. This allows us to see your teeth’s position more clearly.
As with any dental issue, you should see your dentist immediately rather than delay your next routine check-up.
Wisdom Teeth Removal Process
Young adults usually have their wisdom teeth extracted (under 25). Your wisdom teeth have swollen by this time, and your dentist will likely advise having them removed.
Your Cabramatta dentist or oral surgeon will do the following during the wisdom tooth extraction procedure:
- Cut your gum tissue to expose the tooth and bone.
- Remove the portion of bone that prevents access to the tooth root.
- If the tooth is easier to remove in smaller pieces, cut it into sections.
- Remove the tooth
- Cleaning the extraction site of any debris from the tooth or bone
- Stitch the wound to encourage healing.
- Apply gauze to the affected area to aid in controlling bleeding and assisting in the formation of a blood clot
After Surgery Care
After a week, most patients who underwent wisdom tooth extraction surgery are back to normal. The span of the recovery period will depend on the procedure’s complexity, the type of anaesthesia used, your diet, and any complications that can be avoided.
For the first three days following the extraction, keep your head elevated. When lying on your bed, raise your head with pillows. Never incline your head down towards your chest. Never forget that the area is a wound in your jaw that needs to heal.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
What is an impacted wisdom tooth?
An impacted wisdom tooth cannot emerge or develop generally because there is not enough space after the second molar.
Why do wisdom teeth need to be pulled?
To prevent harming the neighbouring teeth, wisdom teeth that are impacted or overcrowded must be removed. Extraction is not required if they develop normally, are healthy, and function properly.
What problems can develop if I do not remove my wisdom teeth?
If wisdom teeth do not develop properly, they may cause more severe dental issues, such as damage to neighbouring teeth, jaw damage (growth of cysts), inflamed or infected gum tissues, cavities, problems with alignment, or sinus problems.
